ShareScan: How To Upgrade to the Latest Version


How to request a software upgrade for eCopy products.

Upgrade Requirements:

  • Only licenses with active Maintenance and Support contracts are eligible for upgrades.
  • Upgrades are only available to the current shipping software version only. Example: a customer with 4.3.5 cannot upgrade to 5.4 as the current shipping version (at time of writing) is 6.1.
  • Review technical recommendations for upgrading the solution including pre-requisites, release notes etc to ensure that the software will meet customer needs and expectations. For ShareScan upgrades, Proof of Concept (POC) installations in the customer environment are strongly recommended. 
  • NOTE: Downgrades of licenses are not available. Please ensure that the upgrade is desired before requesting via the registration site.
